We have to stop making future space junk.
but most generally we experience a particular flavor of Arab-dominated Islamic extremism
So... Boko Haram in Nigeria is Arab-dominated? Huh.
Do you also support contract killings? Because he ordered hits on a few people.
Or so you've been told by the Fed^H^H^H Media.
Yes, I can see it now. A stripped Linux kernel will boot, and then in turn will boot the SystemD-OS.

It would only be minutes after this dream was realized when moralizing politicians would insist on fine-grained monitoring of all user activities, along with the banning of all websites showing anything more naughty than a fully-clothed nipple.

Khomeini was a clever bastard who tricked the Iranian reformists who wished to replace the Shah with a democracy. He promised before he got on a plane in France to be merely a figurehead. In short order he had co-opted the revolution (which was, by and large to that point, secular in nature).

But that was how many years ago? 500+? The Catholic church and it's beliefs have greatly changed since. The way I see it, Islam (or some members/sections of it) today is where the Christian/Catholic religion was many centuries ago was.
Dr. George Tiller was murdered (ironically in the doorway of his church) by a Christian zealot for daring to assist women in controlling their own freaking bodies.
But this does point out the one common bedrock of all organized religions: the control and subjugation of women, up to and including rape and murder.
Fuck religion (all of them).
